Release from City of Elkhart

Mayor Dick Moore announced today the leaf pick up schedule in the City of Elkhart. The leaf pickup program will begin in Zone A, October 15th and November 12th, south of the rail road track to the City limits. 

Leaf pickup will continue in Zone B the weeks of October 22nd and November 19th in the neighborhoods north of the St. Joseph River and west of Johnson Street. 

Zone C leaf pickup will be the weeks of October 29th and November 26th in the neighborhoods north of the St. Joseph River and East of Johnson Street.

Zone D leaf pick up will be the weeks of November 5th and December 3rd and includes all neighborhoods south of the St. Joseph River up to the Main Line Norfolk Southern railroad tracks.  A map of all zones and schedules is attached.

The Street Department crews will automatically pick up the leaves and there will be no need to contact the Street Department to give an address.

The Mayor reminds citizens to please rake the leaves to the street and not put the leaves in the street. He also encourages citizens to watch out for children playing in the leaves.  Do not put limbs, trash, stone, and brick in the leaf piles.  Branches/limbs should be in a separate pile.  Residents may feel free to bag the leaves, however.

The Mayor appreciates the cooperation of everyone during this time with the removal of leaves.

If residents have any questions, they may feel free to contact the Street Department directly at 574-293-5518.
